Teeccino Herbal Coffee

Teeccino Herbal Coffee

There’s not too much I don’t like about being Mormon, but not drinking coffee is one thing!  I was a coffee drinker before I converted five years ago.  Not the kind that had to have her coffee every morning, but the kind that really enjoyed it with dessert. Especially cold, windy days called for a visit to Starbucks or Peet’s to get a cafe latte, and an iced Americano was a favorite treat on hot summer days.  Breaking the habit was hard.  Very hard.  Even today when a roasting pot wafts my way, I am delighted with its distinct smell and fight the urge to have a cup.  But today, my friends in similar quandaries – or those who are just trying to give up coffee for other reasons, I have great, great news.  It’s called Teeccino Herbal Coffee.

Here’s why I love Teeccino Herbal Coffee:

  • It’s not coffee.  There is no coffee, whatsoever, in it.
  • It smells as good as coffee.
  • You brew it in a coffee pot just like coffee.
  • It has the same texture and consistency of coffee.
  • It tastes strikingly similar to coffee.
  • You add your normal creamer and sweetener as you would with your favorite cup of joe.  (I use raw milk and Stevia)
  • It tastes great hot and cold.
  • It’s mostly natural, containing barley, carob, and a variety of other nuts, figs, and fruits to simulate the coffee taste.
  • I can drink it.  And I do… oh, I do.  Lots and lots.
  • There is no caffeine.
  • It’s non-acidic.
  • It restores an alkaline balance in your body.
  • It’s safe before, during, and after pregnancy.
  • It’s good for you!
  • It’s GLUTEN FREE!!!!

The one thing I cannot say is that it’s not ADDICTING.  Because I happen to think it is.  I start a pot in the morning, drink several hot cups, chill the rest, and have an iced-coffee dessert, or two, at night.  Mmmmmm.  I am in love.  So, so in love.  Maybe just slightly less than with my husband.

It comes in light, medium, and dark roasts in a huge variety of flavors from Vanilla Nut, to Chocolate Mint.  I’ve been sipping the Mediterranean Java, which I hear is a little sweeter than some from the Maya collection, which more exactly imitate the true taste of coffee.

Some things to know:

  • Despite there being Barley in it, it IS Gluten Free.  A study confirms that BREWED teeccino does not contain gluten.
  • The makers of Teeccino only deal in fair trade.  (yay)
  • Teeccino does not taste EXACTLY like coffee.  But it is a DARN good alternative!
  • You can buy a whole Teeccino sampler pack before committing to a one-pound bag.  Free shipping.
  • This is VERY hard to find in stores.  I did not see it at Whole Foods or Trader Joes, but I did find some at a local no-name health food store by my house.  I do believe Sunflower Markets carry it.
  • The best place to buy is from Amazon.  A one pound bag is normally about $10.  You can buy a 3-pack for about $22 on Amazon.  Buy that book you’ve always wanted at the same time to get your total up to $25 and get free shipping :-)
  • You can drink it now, and thank me later :-)
